Browsing the internet is something that many people consider the most fun these days. You can do so on your desktop computer, laptop, tablet, or smartphone. We’ve become so accustomed to using the internet on a regular basis for any number of purposes.
In the last two decades we’ve seen the rise of social networks, and the biggest giant of them all is Facebook, of course. Some people can’t actually live without their daily dose of Facebook.
This is why for them it is of the utmost importance to have the fastest and easiest access to their favorite social media network. If you’re one of them, you’re probably gonna love this – you can set it up so that it actually becomes your homepage in your Google Chrome browser. Read on to find out how.
Once you’ve downloaded and installed Google Chrome on your computer, the next step is always to customize it according to your needs and preferences.
When installed, Google Chrome doesn’t show the home button, so you need to set it up so that it actually shows it and that you can use it to access your preferred page in the fastest way possible, without a need for typing in the URL address each and every time.
This can be done by following a few simple steps:
- Open Google Chrome on your computer
- Located at the top right portion of Google Chrome, you will find three upright dots. Click on them.
- You will be greeted by a drop-down menu with numerous options, but you should head all the way down to the bottom, where you will find the second option from the bottom called “Settings”. Click on that.
- Clicking on “Settings” will open a new page where you will find the second white field titled “Appearance”. Over here you will find all the necessary settings for your home page.
- Checking the “Show Home button” option will turn the button on, and you will be able to locate it right before the space where you enter URL addresses for browsing, just to its left. It is a small button with a stylized drawing of a home, so you can’t really miss it.
- Right below this, you will find further options. If you select the first one, the “New Tab” option, you will be greeted by a new tab each time you click the Home button. Since you want Facebook login to be opened each time you click the home button, you will need to select the next option, which has a space for you to enter the URL that you want to open. Just type in exactly like this:
Pictured below is the “Appearance” field where you need to make all the required changes in the setup of your Google Chrome browser.
There is also another, even faster way of getting to the page where you log in to your Facebook profile. You can set it up as the page that opens each time you open your Google Chrome browser.
Once again, to do so you will need to follow a few simple steps, which shouldn’t take more than a few minutes. Here you go:
- The first 3 steps are the same as above. You want to get to “Settings”.
- In “Settings”, you will find a fifth white field titled “On startup”. As the name suggests, over here you will be able to determine what you want Google Chrome to do each time you start it up.
- The first two options are “Open the New Tab page”, which makes Google Chrome open a new blank tab each time you start it up, and “Continue where you left off”, which means that on startup it will open for you the last page you were on.
- The third option is the one you want – “Open a specific page or set of pages”. When selected, it will prompt you to type in a link. Since you want the Facebook login page, just type this in –
So these are two ways for setting up Google Chrome so that it uses Facebook Login as its home page, also the page that opens when you click on the Home button.
Word of Advice
Even though you might want these settings to help you get to your Facebook account faster, there are still a few things that you might want to consider before setting up your Google Chrome browser like that.
Are you the only person using your computer? If that’s the case, then there isn’t much to worry about. But if someone else uses it as well, you risk sharing your personal and private data with another person.
If this is the case, don’t allow Google Chrome to remember your log-in credentials. Each time you log in, it will prompt you to save your email address and password for easier and faster access, but you may not want to choose this option if you’re not the only user of this computer.
As you can see, setting up Facebook login as your homepage in Google Chrome browser is a fairly easy task that can be done in just a few minutes or less. Now, go and enjoy your newfound convenience with the Facebook login page set up as your homepage.
